Case Study: Nimesh Ved
Under Nimesh Ved’s leadership, Samrakshan, a non-profit organization has been working towards conservation education and capacity building for over a decade. His organization has collaborated with local communities to secure the Balpakram-Baghmara landscape which is now identified as a top priority elephant corridor. He also undertook staff training and surveys to help establish the Tokalo Wildlife Sanctuary, which was subsequently notified. His undying perseverance in providing and taking conservation education to the remotest corners of the Northeast is truly commendable. Recently, the Mizoram Forest Department invited him to provide his expertise and guidance to resolve conservation issues in the Dampa Tiger Reserve. Nimesh is currently working on highlighting the palm oil menace in the region. For his tireless efforts, he was awarded The Balipara Foundation Green Guru Award.
